St Petersburg Russia – a different trip to Europe April 1, 2016 by Lisa Grable 2 Comments I am expressing my support for the Ukrainian people by taking down this post. February 2022. Share this post:
I heard from a Russian classmate that St. Petersburg is an amazing city, but I didn’t think I’d know anyone to travel there! What an adventure. I have heard that it’s really complicated for American citizens to get visas for travel to Russia. How was the process for you? I’m also a huge fan of your contextual knowledge of St. Petersburg and ability to read Cyrillic. That kind of knowledge always elevates the experience. All of the people I’ve travelled with who have (even a little) knowledge of the local area have been the most respectful and responsible guests as well. It’s so good to read about your travels!
So glad you liked this, Andrea! I feel sure you’ll manage to go someday. You do need to allow several months for the visa process. We went with a group, so it was somewhat easier. Maybe you want to guest post on your travels?
